Kristin Stewart Reveals What It's Like to Be Cyberbullied by Donald Trump

As an A-list actress, Kristen Stewart knows how to handle the haters — even the one currently occupying the Oval Office.


"You are one of the first people on Twitter that our president, Donald Trump, attacked repeatedly," "Late Night" host Stephen Colbert reminded the freshly buzzed actress Thursday. "This was back in 2012 when you and Robert Pattinson were breaking up." 

"This is the first tweet," he said, holding up a printout for reference. "Keep in mind, this is the man who's now the keeper of the launch codes."

Kristen Stewart assured the host she's doing much better today. 

"Did this teach you how to deal with bullies?" Colbert asked. "Because that's bully behavior. Why do you think he attacked you? Did you talk to him about it?"

Stewart still doesn't know, having failed to start a dialogue with the troll-turned-president.  

"I tried... I even did it publicly and he didn't publicly respond," she lamented. 

"Well, I will say this: he tweeted at you 11 times, okay?" Colbert added. "How does it feel to be tweeted at more than the president has condemned anti-Semitism?"
